NFL Draft

As we watch the draft progress, we read blogs by several well-respected local media beat writers. Jerry McDonald of the Contra Costa Times notes:

Looked on TV as if Dallas was less enthusiastic than most teams. Some actual perspective, perhaps? The whole, high-five, whoop-and-hollar thing seems a little ridiculous in draft rooms. All you did was turn in a card.

This. We make such a big deal out of the draft, because we all love football. The bottom line is, the hype here is incredible. About half of these players will be with another team five years from now, and some of them will have played…or not played…themselves out of the NFL.

It is cool that we can push aside talk of labor strife for a few days, and talk about football. It’s a welcome relief.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
